Plume dispersion of the exhaust from a cryogenic wind tunnelAn analytical model was developed to predict the behavior of the plume exhausting from the cryogenic National Transonic Facility. Temperature, visibility, oxygen concentration, and flow characteristics of the plume are calculated for distance downwind of the stack exhaust. Negative buoyancy of the cold plume is included in the analysis. Compared to photographic observations, the model predicts the centerline trajectory of the plume fairly accurately, but underpredicts the extent of fogging. The diffusion coefficient is revised to bring the model into better agreement with observations.
